Shopping Your Closet

Happy Monday Beauties!

Do you suffer from thinking you have to buy a new outfit for every event? If you answered yes, don’t feel bad; I once suffered from the same. That’s why this post is all about how I shop my closet and revamp old looks. I’m also dishing out a few tips as well!

So let’s do a little flashback, I made my first post in this duster last year on Instagram. I kept it real simple and paired this duster with a white shirt, jeans and black pumps.

When it comes to shopping your personal closet to revamp looks, simple things such as adding a belt or statement pieces can take your revamped look and make it look like a brand new outfit!

Here are my three simple steps for shopping your personal closet:

Get Inspired

Inspiration plays a huge part in creating revamped looks! One of my favorite places to look for inspiration is Pinterest. Click here to check out my boards for inspiration.

•Mix and Match

Don’t be afraid to mix different colors and prints! Take a day to literally play dress up! Get in the mirror and model your beautiful revamped looks. Take pictures of each outfit you try on and create an album in your phone.

So now when you have an event to attend you won’t have to scramble or think about putting looks together again. Just simply recreate the looks from your album!

Get Your Closet Ready

For me, it’s hard to “shop my closet” when my closet is a catastrophe( yes, I said catastrophe) and finding inspiration is even harder! For items you no longer want, pack up your items and drop them off to a thrift store. If you have clothing that are not too dated or worn, then consider using Poshmark, or even a yard sale! A little extra cash never hurt anyone!

Are you feeling inspired? I can’t wait to see your revamped looks! Shoot me an email, tag me on Instagram or send me a dm with your looks!

Styling Like A Boss, Girl Boss That Is…

Every girl boss has their own signature work style. Some tend to think of a CEO, manager or any high power position when the words are said. However, you can be a girl boss in many ways, regardless of your work title.

My work style is fun but yet, business casual. While the majority of my time is spent at work during the week; I still like to have those transitional pieces that can go from the office to the weekend. This fun, flirty skirt gives me the business casual look I desire along with the fun.

There are two items every working woman should have in their closet and that’s a white button-down shirt and a great pair of heels. Now, let me be honest with you. I love my heels but by 1:30 pm, you’ll probably find me in a pair of cute flats. Unless it’s a chunky heel, now I can strut all day in a chunky heel.

A classic white button-down is a must-have wardrobe item. I would even go as far as to say, buy multiple! This staple piece is so easy to become a routine, so finding creative ways to reinvent the look is best to keep the look fresh. Pair the shirt with trousers, layer the look with a duster or vest, just to name a few.

I snagged this white button down shirt during an online bogo Forever21 sale. I purchased the shirt and a floral skirt, which I showed in my YouTube haul here, for $22.00. Not bad at all, right? You may also remember the skirt and shoes from my haul as well. All the items were on sale! The skirt is from Ashley Stewart and the shoes are from Charlotte Russe.

So, how do you conquer the day in your girl boss work style? I would love to hear how you slay your work attire. Clothing can easily affect the confidence level. Let your fashions communicate confidence in every way!
